Ash Wednesday, February 17, 2021

Posted on

Today is the start of a new Lent and Gus talks about the different ways of dispensing ashes on peoples' foreheads and questions the social distancing measures that have been implemented in some parishes. Gus gets listeners thoughts on it and talks with many who've already been to Ash Wednesday mass and how they received their ashes.

Gus reads an article written by Gail Finke that appeared recently in Crisis Magazine entitled "Are We Going to Throw Out Ash Wednesday Too?" The author ensures the reader that her intent is not to question COVID or social distancing measures but does question the planning that went into it and if some of it is really necessary and what the dangerous effects may be.
